Fans had a controversial relationship with how Fox treated his miraculous qualities. Although the studio released a handful of clear winners, many of them X Men The films in particular have proved their worth among comic book fans.

Actor Vinnie Jones said his role has changed drastically
But the film version of Juggernaut removed all those stories. Instead, Magneto (Ian McKellen) recruits the mutant to join his cause, limiting Juggernaut to more than muscle. This was not the case when Vinnie Jones (Snatch), who signed up for the film, told Comic Book Movie.
I loved the role, but … I was basically fired. Matthew Vaughn signed me and it was a big job and a great script and Juggernaut was a great character. I signed up for three of them, and that will show you how serious it was. [Director] Brett Ratner basically disbanded the character. I was halfway in my trailer. It’s one of the most disappointing tasks I’ve ever done, if you know, “What am I doing here?”
As Jones said, Matthew Vaughn was ready to follow his directorial debut – a 2004 crime thriller. Layered cake – using X Men continued. Brett Ratner (Rush hour traffic) finally took over the project. Vaughn would later help reboot / prequel X-Men: First class in 2011.

Juggernaut will definitely get another chance at the MCU
To make matters worse, Jones said some fans accused him of portraying Juggernaut. The actor claims that Ratner promised him new material after script changes drastically reduced his role. But that never happened, and fans were left with a caricature of the cult supervillain.
“I know what that means to the fans, and I felt like I was a bit of a scapegoat because no one ever told my side,” Jones told Comic Book Movie. “No one ever got up and said, ‘Wait a minute, we’ve completely bleached Vinnie’s character.’ “Basically, I was extra, my friend. That’s how I felt. I was gutted to be honest.”
Juggernaut’s big screen debut probably didn’t live up to expectations. But the character returned years later in the year Deadpool 2However, the film did not re-examine its story. With X-Men probably heading for a reboot in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Juggernaut may finally get in order when it appears on the screen.
